The 'Pocket Full O 'Posies' lookbook is a sublime throwback to the posh vintage fashion of the 1930s. This collection by Australian fashion designer Kelly Love boasts ultra-feminine and romantically inspired fabrics that will lovingly adorn any wearer. Through this clothing series, Kelly Love attempts to transport fashion-lovers back in time -- a time of countryside vacations, family picnics in the park and outdoorsy games. She combines element of past femininity, actual articles of vintage lingerie and cocktails dresses from the 30s into modern pieces; the old becomes new and sought-after because of Love's creative re-working.
The pieces place high focus on the use of specific materials and stay true to the vintage fashion that first inspired them. Love uses multiple materials and contrasting embellishments including French antique lace, spotted silk, crochet collars and pleated jerseys, that simply add to its authenticity.
The 'Pocket Full O 'Posies' is a whimsically nostalgic collection that integrates past fashion and attitudes seamlessly into 21st century attire.
The Kelly Love 'Pocket Full O 'Posies' Collection is Vintage-Inspired
